This cobbled medieval street is near the grand Cathedral and takes you through the best of the old historic area. You'll pass multistory timbered Norman French houses, stores, boutiques, shops, restaurants and markets. Enjoy the very special ambiance of the area and imagine Monet being there at a cafe. ...

Apart from the horloge this street is an overcrowded shopping mall without many special shops. You can find most magasins in a lot of other places.

Such a wonderful street full of German-style architecture which is prominent in a lot of these towns all around Normandy. We loved wandering around the little streets and taking photos at every opportune moment we could. This street especially is full over gorgeous pottery shops with ancient style pottery from the area.
